Tottenham have completed the signing of defender Alan Hutton from Scottish club Rangers.
The 23-year-old Scotland right-back has joined for a fee believed to be in the region of £9m.
“We are delighted to announce we have reached agreement with Glasgow Rangers for the transfer of Alan Hutton,” said a statement on Tottenham’s website.
The Premiership club had agreed a fee with Rangers at the start of the transfer window but the player turned down the chance of a switch to Spurs.
But Spurs retained their interest in Hutton and, after making an improved offer to the player, managed to persuade him to make th move to White Hart Lane.
“The last 12 months have been fantastic for me personally and I have received great support from the Rangers fans,” Hutton told the Rangers website.
“That meant a lot and helped give me the confidence to take the next step in my career.
“I wish Rangers every success for the season and in the future and, although I’m sad to leave, there is no doubt my transfer is good not just for me but for the Rangers.”
Rangers boss Walter Smith had earlier said: “The clubs agreed a fee a couple of weeks ago and it was up to Alan to decide what he wanted to do.
“He took his time as he has told me that he was enjoying his football here and he wasn’t in too much of a rush to go anywhere.
“But as the weeks have gone on he has decided it was the right time for him and we wish him well in that respect.
“Throughout the club there is disappointment that he’s leaving, but clearly it was an offer we couldn’t turn down.”
